Conventional, dull collections. Very little of the art is challenging or provocative. Very little context to the art is provided. Some of the collections seem random and disjointed. A couple of the exhibits would be more at home in a village art fair. The Art...More

This museum's collections are not my favorites but others may find them interesting. I was most disappointed in how they jammed all of what I call traditional art into a couple rooms.

A lot of different pieces that were amazing. There were quite a few areas of the museum that were unavailable due to new exhibits being put in, hopefully I will be able to see them in the future.

It's a nice place in an park by a small lake, but the collection is third rate. I have seen some traveling shows there that were worth it, but nothing this time.

This museum was very clean, spacious, and nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our family usually doesn’t like modern art (a cube on the floor is not art!), but the exhibit currently on view - Do It - was super cool. Some of it...More

Had been recommended this venue by friends. Although the staff were friendly and helpful, the museum itself was rather disappointing. Not a great deal to see and exhibits were spaced out within a large area making it seem more extensive than it was. Spent more...More

I'd heard this museum was worth a trip from our guide at the Oakleigh House, and I'm so glad we listened! It wasn't on our original itinerary because it is pretty far removed from the historic attractions downtown, but it's worth the drive. The collection...More

I was very surprised at the collection the museum has acquired, quite beautiful. At the time I went, there was a beautiful wood exhibit that was unbelievable. I could have just sat and enjoyed the beauty.
